In Reply to: Robert Wotherspoon (1859-?) by Murray Archer of 224

Not sure if this will help but it is interesting to note:
My grandmother was Agnes Watson - she was born Agnes Wotherspoon on Jan 14, 1897 in Brooklyn, New York. My grandmother's death certificate lists her mother's name as Margaret Millar and her father's name as Robert Wotherspoon and says that both were born in Scotland.
Agnes married my grandfather, James Cameron Watson on June 3, 1924 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She died July 2, 1930 in Halifax. Just wondering if the "tradition" you spoke about refers to Robert's daughter Agnes emigrating to Nova Scotia - this would certainly fit.
I am just beginning to create our family tree and came across your message in my research.
